Family of former Essex factory worker appeals for information following his asbestos-related death

The family of Alan Bullen, who died age 71, from asbestos-related cancer, are appealing for information from his former colleagues about the use of asbestos at the Marley Concrete and Marley Tile Company factory where he worked in the 1960s and 70s.

Posted on 26 January 2022

Alan believed he came in to contact with asbestos while he worked at the Aveley factory for Marley Concrete and Marley Tile Company in the late 1960s.

Alan recalled that the Aveley factory produced roof tiles, and he remembered cutting and drilling roof tiles that he believed were made from asbestos.

In February 2020, Alan died from the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma. At the time of his passing he lived in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

Leigh Day are investigating a legal claim on behalf of Alan’s widow and children and would like to hear from anybody who worked for Marley Concrete and Marley Tile Company at their Aveley factory in the late 1960s or early 1970s about the potential use of asbestos materials there.

Leigh Day solicitor Daniel Easton said:

“We know that asbestos was commonly used to make roof tiles in the 1960s and 1970s. It would be very helpful to speak to other people who recall working at the Aveley factory for Marley Concrete and Marley Tile Company around the same time as Alan Bullen, to assist with our investigations.”
